Nairobi Terror Attack: Survivor 'Smeared Herself In Blood' (VIDEO)

A survivor of the Nairobi shopping centre massacre in Kenya says she owes her life to a teenage boy who died beside her after she covered herself in his blood and played dead as the brutal massacre carried on beside her.

"I took a lot of his blood, (as) much (as) I could and I tried to put it on myself. I put it on my arm, a lot of the teenager's blood, and while I was trying to put it on my hand I just realised that he had stopped breathing at that time," Radio presenter Sneha Kothari Mashru said.

"I covered my face with my hair, because my hair was let loose even then, just to pretend that I'm dead or probably badly injured.

"I would still love to know who he is and everything, because his blood probably protected me from getting probably more injured or attacked."
